As they continued to monitor the 12-year veteran for concussion symptoms, Eagles team doctors announced this morning that they would not clear quarterback Michael Vick to play this Sunday after hearing him claim his team “still has a great chance” to make the playoffs.

Does anyone know what 4:25 games are gonna air on CBS in the DC market?

Colts-Patriots or Broncos-Chargers

Nobody has bothered updating the schedule to show the flex.

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

I hope Mike Ditka can return soon. He suffered a minor stroke tonight.

This season has gone by so fast. It feels like just yesterday i was anxiously waiting for the season opener. Now its Week 11 and the season is more than halfway done.

After tomorrow, only 6 weeks of regular season action and then its done. Then its the playoffs, superbowl, pro bowl, and we're back to offseason discussion and another 7 months until the regular season Sad

Maybe its just me, but the season has felt like a daze.

If Julio Jones doesn't play I think Arizona pulls the upset. They can easily make Roddy a non factor and then that's it, no Falcons offense. Get a couple big plays from Peterson and Washington.

+350. Man I wish I still messed with that.

I voted for Tim Tebow 200 times last year in the Pro Bowl voting and he didn't make it in so I'm not voting at all this year

509. Andre Johnson (273) and Justin Blackmon (236) combined for 509 yds receiving, the most by two players in the same game in NFL history.

So this Rob Gronkowski kid is pretty good, eh?
First TE ever with 10+ TDs in his first 3 seasons.
37 in 42 games
By comparison, Randy Moss had 36 in his first 42.

A question I've always wondered about. Why are corners usually around 6'-6'1" or 6'2"? How come there aren't any 6'3" and taller?

Generally as you get taller, you're not as nimble, your hips aren't as fluid and things like that. For the players that are that tall and have those abilities, they're almost all bred to be wide receivers over CBs because they offer the opportunity for elite matchup problems. For those with those problems, it's much easier to mask those issues as a WR than as a defender.

That would be my guess as to why.

I figured it had something to do with that. The smaller guys are still tall enough to keep up with the tall speed guys I guess.

Pretty much. Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman are susceptible to the nimble route runners. On the other hand, a taller CB with long arms are able to make for the lack of fluidity by being able to swat balls away with their reach.
